Volatile NBA Futures Market

July 2, 2019
Lakers heavy favorites to win it all

The NBA off-season has been one of the most active and entertaining in recent years. Kawhi Leonard, MVP in the NBA Finals, is just part of the headline news. Other top players have been relocating as well. Anthony Davis, Jimmy Butler, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irvin just to name a few.

With all this movement, it has been hard for sportsbooks to continually update their betting futures for the NBA Championship. Many sportsbooks have left the option off-the-board until the player movement settles. Online sportsbook told us “We aren’t offering NBA futures right now because of all the trades and Free agency pickups. Don’t have any information to give. If Kawhi goes to the Lakers expect the Lakers to be an even heavier favorite.” This sentiment is echoed by many other sportsbooks.

Immediately after the Raptors won the final game last month the first odds posted had Golden State heavily favored to win it all in 2020 and the Lakers were about nine spots down. But LA was on the move up and Golden State would fall.

The Brooklyn Nets moved up some after their two huge free agent signings. The Warriors did not drop all that much but I expect them to drop a little more. Miami and New Orleans remain in the middle of the pack. But I bet that you won’t be seeing the Pelicans this low for years to come.
